Summer Education Camps

Kids on Campus! Teens on Campus!

Temple Ambler has been offering Summer Education Camps for more than 25 years at our convenient suburban campus. Camps are available for kids, tweens, and teens between the ages of 8 and 17, during the months of June, July and August. Most camps are one-week, full-day camps that run Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., although some shorter camp sessions are also available.

The Temple University Ambler Summer Education Camps provide a wonderful opportunity for youths to learn about a specific area of interest, experience a college campus and have lots of fun at the same time.
